Exercise Is The Friend You Need For Weight Loss
They say that Exercise is the Poor Man’s Plastic Surgery and for Good Reason.
What Happens When You Exercise?
Any type of movement could be considered exercise because it uses the body’s muscles. All sports are obviously exercise, like tennis, basketball, soccer, but other activities like running, walking, and swimming are also exercises.
Different muscles groups are used depending on the exercise that is taking place. Some exercises work to keep the body moving while others work to keep the body performing a certain task. Exercise simply means that the muscles are being activated.
When your muscles are being used for exercise they become more demanding than in simple activities. The muscles need more support from the body and during hard exercise the entire body works to support the muscles and in some cases parts of the body shut down so that the energy they use can go to the muscles.
And What Exactly Is ATP
Your muscles need energy to keep moving and exercising. So, they use ATP, adenosine triphosphate, to provide energy to the muscles. Your muscles literally burn the ATP and during this time there are several things that are necessary. First, your muscles need oxygen because ATP is produced by consuming oxygen. It is necessary to have an adequate source of oxygen for this chemical reaction to occur.
Next, the chemical reactions generate metabolic waste including lactic acid and carbon dioxide. The muscles need to be able to eliminate these wastes. Finally, muscles that are being exercised need to be able to eliminate excess heat. When you exercise your muscles get hot and it is important to get rid of the extra heat. As long as you exercise your muscles will create ATP, meaning that oxygen must be supplied, heat must be regulated, and waste must be removed.
The harder you exercise the more work your body must do to keep up with the ATP production, temperature control, and removal of waste. When the body cannot keep up with the level of exercise then your body will simply stop you.
Your entire body takes part in exercise including your skin, heart, nervous system, blood, liver, lungs, and more. It truly is incredible how the whole body works together to allow you to exercise.
Need Energy? Here’s Where The Energy Comes From
So, where does the energy come from you may be wondering? It comes from the fat in your body and the calories you consume throughout the day. There are 3500 calories in a pound so you must burn this many calories before you can lose a pound. Your body will begin using stored fat for energy when you begin burning more than you are taking in.
Exercise And Weigh Loss Working Together
The process of how the body converts stored fat into energy is interesting and it truly is amazing that the human body is able to regulate everything about itself.
That is how exercise will help you lose weight.
